About Kingsdale Foundation School
First Class and Top of the Class!
‘This popular school is a harmonious environment where pupils learn how to be successful in modern Britain.’ Ofsted 2017
Kingsdale is an Outstanding School in every area (Ofsted 2017) that provides exceptionally rich opportunities to challenge students of all abilities including providing options in Year 9 to study Triple Science, Latin, Economics and Psychology and the chance to study two languages from Year 7. Kingsdale attracts many able students and operates a condensed or accelerated Key Stage 3 programme of study to meet the particular needs and aspirations of all of the students and their families. The school offers a wide variety of academic subjects including 4 or 5 optional courses selected by each child in addition to enrichment activities every day.
‘The curriculum is broad and balanced, supporting pupils’ outstanding outcomes because of the chance pupils have to be successful in a range of subjects.’ Ofsted 2017
Last year Kingsdale ranked as a top band non-selective school for attainment nationally at Key Stage 4 and the top school in the Local Authority for progress at Key Stage 5 with some truly outstanding academic results. Remarkably, Kingsdale has produced the top student in the country at GCSE for possibly 5 consecutive years! We hold successive national records for individual student attainment at Key Stage 4. The school has an excellent pupil to teacher ratio and average class sizes are approximately 20 across all subjects.
‘Pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding because of the care and attention that staff pay to making pupils’ time in school productive and safe.’ Ofsted 2017
Students have access to iPads, PCs, Apple Macs, laptops, wireless technology and a Virtual Learning Environment. Kingsdale has also introduced one to one mobile technology so that students benefit from having the opportunity to use an iPad safely for educational purposes, as appropriate, in school and at home.
Subsidised excursions to amazing destinations such as Malaysia, Namibia, Brazil, the USA and the French Alps are organised every year.
‘Pupils’ time in school is enriched by the wide variety of opportunities they are offered in which they can develop and explore skills that match their aspirations.’ Ofsted 2017
Kingsdale is a dynamic, remarkably popular and progressive school that has invested £30m to develop an award-winning educational learning environment.
